Laney Landry has been fighting Deads alongside her brother and friends for three years. But she has a secret. She's immune to Dead bites and has to find the right people to trust with the information. Her team rallies around her to find a doctor who can extract a vaccine from Laney which could fight the virus that ended the world.

Sean Daniels leads a colony that provides her team with much needed shelter and supplies. He is obviously interested in Laney. The question is whether he's only intrigued by her as a source for the possible vaccine, or for something more. Tests for the cure might push her body beyond what it can endure, and just as she faces a ghost from her past, her longtime teammate Derek Mitchell hints at an interest in more than just her Dead slaying abilities.

Two honorable and alluring men - one colossal decision to make. Despite historically bad taste in men, can she rise above the chaos of the apocalypse and choose the one who deserves her heart? The right choice could mean the difference between surviving...and living.

Firstable…(haha just kidding) First of all we must give HUGE props to Toni at My Book Addiction for her amazing zOctober event for introducing us to amazing zombie books!!! It was>> her review<< of this book that caught both my and Elyse’s eye!


We were both like, Needz it! (Giphy)

So everyone bow down to the greatness that is Toni!!!

I can’t be the only one that calls Toni ‘The Queen’? Right?(Giphy)

Lori: Love in the Time of the Dead is kind of perfect.

Elyse: Kind of perfect is an understatement Lori.

Lori: Well I mean. I think I liked Love at The End of Days just a tiny bit better. Check out our GIF filled review of Book 2. >>RIGHT HERE<<


Elyse: I finished this book on the 4th and I still have nothing smart or coherent to say. I still feel like this.

Lori: Let’s start off with Laney Landry. She’s pretty much everything I want from a female lead in a zombie novel. She’s not perfect, but she’s not so flawed that I hate her.

Elyse: And then there’s Sean-I-Wanna-Sex-You-Daniels and his bodyguard Finn. Oh and Laney’s brother Jarren, and Mitchell too. Yeah the guys in this book are pretty awesome.

Lori: Yeah. The romance is kind of perfect. It’s slow building. And amaze. It’s a lot like this…


And this…

And maybe a bit like this…


Cause ya’ know…. ZOMBIES!

But don’t think it’s too soft for zombie fans too. You can’t have a zombie book without death.


Elyse: This was a 5 star book for me!


About Tera Shanley

Born and raised in small town Texas, Tera Shanley grew up in books. Her cousin gifted her a signed copy of Beauty by Bill Wallace when she was young and that was it for her. So smitten was she with getting lost in a story, that while other eleven year olds her age were groaning at the accelerated reader program in school, she was racking up the points just for fun.

Balancing chronic book-wormyness is her devotion to the outdoors. Hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, camping – her soul is happiest out of doors. And lucky for Tera, her family feels the same. She grew up a wild child helping her grandma ranch cattle, and has a hundred memories out in the wilderness which tend to influence her books.

When she’s not eating chocolate, slinging rifles, or soaking up some sun, she’s lost in a book, but these days it’s more often one she’s writing. From historic western romance, to paranormal romance, to apocalyptic (zombie) romance, the genre doesn’t matter quite as much to her as the love story.

She currently lives with her husband and two young children, and is owned by two crazy mini-cujos.
